Do you have two left feet? Do you avoid the dance floor out of fear of embarrassment? If you’ve ever secretly wished you could move your body like Joaquín Cortés — well, at least in a video — a new AI-powered 3D body mesh recovery module called Liquid Warping GAN can give you a leg up.
In the paper ChipGAN: A Generative Adversarial Network for Chinese Ink Wash Painting Style Transfer, a team of researchers from Peking University and Tsinghua University propose an end-to-end GAN-based architecture that can transfer input photos into the style of Chinese ink wash paintings.
Figures from nonprofit organization Mental Health America show the severe depression rate for US youth increased from 5.9 to 8.2 percent over the last five years. The numbers provide a sobering glimpse of the shortcomings in mental health care, and some researchers are suggesting AI might be able to address the problem.
Researchers from Element AI, MILA (Montréal Institute for Learning Algorithms), and Université de Montréal have introduced a powerful transfer language model that can summarize long scientific articles effectively, outperforming traditional seq2seq approaches.
“Adversaries and strategic competitors probably will attempt to use deep fakes or similar machine-learning technologies to create convincing — but false — image, audio, and video files to augment influence campaigns directed against the United States and our allies and partners.”
